Reviews

Just as the first tantalising glimpse of the Isle of Arran across the narrow strait from Adrossan makes one eager to board the squat little ferry, so that raising of the glass to the nose of the eponymous whisky, and breathing deeply of honeyed orange liqueur and sweet biscuity wafers, heightens anticipation of the manifest pleasures to come.

It is distilled in Lochranza in the north of the island where the whisky was once known as Arran water to deceive the authorities! Today, that same, soft Scottish rain comes to rest in Loch Na Davie, flows gently through the Ea san Biorach burn, and down six waterfalls, purifying all the time before it plays its part in creating a clean, sweet, non-chill filtered dram.

This is a fine whisky not to be overlooked. It is every bit as rugged and welcoming as the charming island of its provenance. Complex in its changing impression on the taste buds.

We firmly believe that this charming island of red squirrels, deer, golden eagles, otters and basking sharks is very well served by the whisky that bears its name, and that you will be delighted with the encounter.

Colour: Light ochre.

Nose: Deep, intoxicating coal tar that quickly mellows into creamy fudge.

Palate: The confectionary theme is continued with nutty toffee to the fore, with toasted oats making their presence felt. The considerable warmth has gently rounded edges.

Finish: The finish slopes gently away, bearing caramelised brown sugar and dark berries.

Overall comment: This is a fine whisky not to be overlooked. It is every bit as rugged and welcoming as the charming island of its provenance. Easy-drinking perhaps, but still complex in its changing impression on the taste buds.
